This months theme was ‘From Afar’ and featured a book by Ayesha Harruna Attah.
This month, as per usual, featured some great bookish goodies! Those goodies were as follows; a beautiful Readers of South Korea mug with artwork by Cindy Kang and to go along with that a Chai Hot Chocolate by The Spice Kitchen. A Kingdom of Arawiya Room Spray by Bookish Bazaar to transform your rooms into a desert-scape. A tea towel with artwork by Helen Crawford-White based off of this months book was also included. Also include was some reading samples from Grown by Tiffany D.Jackson and The Once and Future Witches by Alix E.Harrow.
This months featured book was The Deep Blue Between by Ayesha Harruna Attah. Just from the title and cover this book has caught my attention, it is a beautiful cover. This book follows twin sisters Hassana and Husseina who were torn apart after a raid on their hometown. As they face dangers, forge families and discover new cultures, their differences become evident. But their dreams offer lucid insight into each others lives and they can stay connected through this. Will they ever be reunited ?
The Deep Blue Between is a moving story of the bonds that can endure even the most dramatic change.
I am excited to read this book and upon reading some (spoiler-free) reviews it looks like something I will enjoy immersing myself into. I had not heard of this book or author before receiving it in this book box and this is one of the reasons I love this subscription service and would recommend !!! So keep your eyes peeled for a future post on this book!
Many thanks, Caitlin x
